Is Artem from Dancing With the Stars dating?
Following his divorce from wife Giselle, Artem interestingly dated Dancing With the Stars judge Carrie Ann Inaba — who recently called off her engagement to Robb Derringer — for two years from 2006 until 2008. Yes, seriously! He was also previously in a relationship with English actress Kara Tointon from 2010 until 2014. His latest was a serious relationship with actress and model Torrey DeVitto, whom he dated from 2016 until May 2017. Torrey is most known for her starring TV roles on Pretty Little Liars, The Vampire Diaries, One Tree Hill, Army Wives, and Chicago Med. As far as we know, Artem hasn’t been dating anyone since their split.

Is Artem married?
He is not married right now. However, Artem was previously hitched to his dancing partner Giselle Peacock from 2004 until 2005.
How long has he been on DWTS?
Artem first made his TV debut as a pro dancer in September 2010 on the British version of DWTS, Strictly Come Dancing. He appeared on the series for four seasons from 2010 until 2013.
He then joined DWTS as a troupe dancer for Season 18 in March 2014. He officially exited Strictly Come Dancing when he was promoted to a pro dancer on Dancing With the Stars in Season 19 of the hit show and has been on the series ever since!
Who were Artem’s previous DWTS partners?
In Season 19, Artem was paired with Back to the Future star Lea Thompson. He was then partnered with singer Patti LaBelle for Season 20. Artem was not a pro dancer on DWTS in Season 21, but still appeared on the show as a backup dancer.
In Season 22, he was paired with actress Mischa Barton. He was partnered with The Brady Bunch star Maureen McCormick for Season 23, Nancy for Season 24, and now, Artem is dancing with Nikki for Season 25.
Has Artem ever won the Mirror Ball Trophy?
Sadly, no. Artem and Lea finished in sixth place during Season 19. He and Patti made it to eighth place in Season 20. In Season 22, Artem and Mischa finished in 11th place and he and Maureen left the competition eighth during Season 23. In Season 24, he and Nancy were eliminated 6th. Maybe Artem and his current partner, Nikki, will win the Mirror Ball Trophy this season — fingers crossed!
